    Hi, I was hoping someone may know who made this old pin, I do not see any markings . I think it is old glass but am unsure , Maybe its a red coral piece. I thought perhaps the emblems around the top could be some type of Identifying markings. its only about 1" or so. any Thoughts appreciated Thank you

      I remember you, Tom Horn? Right?
      This is a beautiful old piece, I love the huge opaque red focal stone! ( most likely glass) but sadly, to narrow down the maker is nearly impossible. There were literally 1000’s of costume jewelry makers in the last century or so. By the looks of the hinge, this piece could be from around the 1920’s -1930’s. ( that is when the round hinge came into popularity, replacing the trombone, by the 1930’s it was almost standard on brooches) So yes, this piece could be close to a century old, but unless someone has one like it or has seen it in a book ( they’re not always right), I’m afraid the age is all I can help with. Others may know more...
      Good Luck!

      Old Tom Horn ! I still have that tintype. Well I agree its nearly impossible .I will mark it solved as it will be a mystery ,. I do think its glass . as I tried to scratch an area and did not even leave a mark as I think coral would. also its to bright and solid for any other minerals. I will list on ebay . Thanks for your comments ,
